COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big bodied pale ale chock full of extra goodness. Extra malt, extra hops, extra yeast, and extra love. They don’t call it "The Crippla" for nothing.

Tap at Mtn Sun. Pours clear gold with fine white head, some stringy lacing. Aroma is citrus, piney, resinous hops. Flavor is big citrus, piney, mildly herbal hops, similar to aroma, with a lingering hoppy finish and bitter aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and juicy texture.

I like PAs that tend toward the IPA hoppiness. Little to no aroma is disappointing but kudos to the brewmaster for choice of flavoring hops.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2013
Tap at the Vine Street Pub, Denver. Poured a clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malt and citrus hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a strong hoppy liqourice palate. This beer makes a statement but too much of a statement to be a session ale.

kaser (2108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Draft at vines in Denver. Pale yellow pour. Decent hops. Just something about pale ales that I don't like. This is good tho. Bitter and pine notes

JK (4287) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap at Vine Street. A bone dry pale ale with dry hops. This beer has great palate, and it is one of the more intensely hopped APAs I have had anywhere. Gold color.
